Larger breasts on HRT...will they reduce?

Been on mirena coil and oestrogel for nearly two months. My boobs are def bigger - will that change? I don't really like it; they were big enough. Wanted to know if it will settle down. And also, what causes it? The progesterone or the oestrogen?

Lucky you smile
Wish I could say the same!

It is usually oestrogen- that's the 'puberty' hormone!

The Mirena may cause water retention which may have some effect too.

You could try reducing the oestrogen dose if it's really bothering you as long as it still works.

Thank you! Yes, Sod's law it's the ones who don't need a bigger bosom who get it
